HELP! HELP! Am I being disrespectful to my mom?
Daniele88 posted:
Hi everyone. I am 22 years old and I have a long distant boyfriend who comes to visit me every few months. My mom said I was being disrespectful and being immature by closing the door and sleeping with him in my room. She said I was making everyone uncomfortable. She said I wasn't acting twenty two and I was being inconsiderate.

A lot of people have told me that is bad parenting. I just want to make sure if it was because I have been getting in fights with her for months. It's not really bad parenting because she's not really in charge of me anymore, but I just think that her saying I am a "bad immature twenty wo year old," is BS, not bad parenting. But I just want an opinion or some.

Hi Daniele88 and welcome to the board. You have posted this topic on the Bipolar Disorder board which is the wrong place. But, to answer your question, I would say, in my opinion, yes that is disrespectful. It would have never been allowed in my mom and dad's home even when I was 22. The saying was always "my house, my rules, if you don't like it, find somewhere else to live." Even if it had been allowed, I would have never done it out of respect for my parents. I can tell you that I will expect the same from my own children when they are grown. That is just my input.
